Lots of good suggestions for improving creativity, and facts on how other people worked through problems to develop insights and inventions. I really enjoyed reading this book. This is unusual because I am not an avid reader at heart. The author presents many historical case studies of creativity and demonstrates how they apply to different problem solving situations. My only complaint about the book is that toward the end of the book he repeated his historical examples.

This made the book a little repetitious and tedious to read. The best part of this book is that it emphasized the importance of keeping an open mind! Without an open mind which is receptive to unconventional ideas some of the greatest breakthroughs in the world would have not happened.

For several weeks after reading this book I found myself practicing the author suggested “keeping an open mind”.

This can be an effective tool. Now I am back to my predisposed, stodgy old personality. Maybe I should read his new book “Thinker toys” for a fresh injection of creativity. Arrived quickly and as crackihg. Interesting book with ideas that are applicable to improving teaching art or science and everyday living. The reading is engaging and easy to follow.

Cracking CreativitySecrets of Creative Genius : Michael Michalko :

This book holds true to its title. This no nonsense book gets straight to the point on how to unfold your mind and let loose your creativity. This book WILL start to help you think out of the box, to use an old cliche.

Full of great examples and tests along the way that will teach you the michalkko of unleashing your creativity. It contains fascinating historical facts on the great genius of the past, from Newton to Einstein, and how some of their inventions came to be, and their methods used to achieve them. Though chances are we will never come close to the creativity that will compare to the great ones of the past, but it will add and alter your thought process for the better, as it has mine.

I would recommend this book to anyone. This is good if you’re completely inept at thinking outside of conventional ideas. The book is repetitive, the author treats the reader as slightly dumb at times, and a lot of the thinking strategies are so similar it’s nearly pointless to differentiate between them.


Creatibity an interesting read, but not necessary for a lot of people. I’ve been reading this a piece at a time.

Seems for me the best way to let its advice sink in. Enjoyable, encouraging, and has already stimulated several ideas.


I’d buy it again. If I didn’t give 5 stars, it is at times repetitive. This may not be all bad, if the goal is to get some “how to” advice to sink in. An excellent book full of techniques and tips to get you thinking creatively, coming up with ideas, and generally breaking out of your standard thinking patterns. I recommend this book especially for those that feel that their creativity has died off a bit perhaps due to the corporate world of processes and procedures, or simply due to their job not requiring much creativity.

Even for those that never feel they’ve been creative, this book will help. It’s the step before expert. There are billions and billions of Sperts in the world but Oh too few experts! This book, if you apply the principles, will get you into a creative thinking mode.

That in turn can only lead to expert and genius credentials. I love reading this guy! One person found this helpful. See all 67 reviews.
